It would be lovely to have the ability to custom rename (alias) tools in the History pane for quick reference at the outermost level, like this:

It would also be nice to be able to mass-export the history to a textfile, with all the tools and their parameters at once, rather than -- say -- line by line as python.

@JillRKelly I like the idea of a custom note.
We can add a Rename option so that this will be possible.

For the second item, there is an option that is available now to write geoprocessing to an .xml log:  Does this satisfy what you are looking for?

@JonathanNeal  for me personally, no, since this is something you have to enable beforehand. I haven't had this enabled, so I don't have a way to generate this for any work previously done. I also wouldn't need it for everything.
